Southern Potato Salad
I omitted the celery per my husband's request. I also added about 1/2 cup chopped small sweet pickles instead of relish. Everyone loved it...even my best friend, who is a self-proclaimed tater salad snob. She loved it. Kudos!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
I made this for Christmas and EVERYONE thought it was amazing. They couldn't believe it came out of my kitchen. To save time and money, I did use seedless rasberry jam instead of fresh rasberries as someone had suggested. I also cooked the cake in a water bath. Once the cake was cooked, I turned the oven off and let the cake cool with the oven. My cheesecakes never crack or dry with this method. YUM!

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
I was a little nervous making these b/c the previous review was not too positive. There seemed to be a lot of graham cracker crumbs so I cut it down to 2-2 1/2 cups. I also ran out of peanut butter so I only added 1/2 cup to the chocolate layer. I did increase the chocolate chips a bit on top to balance the peanut butter base. It actually turned out pretty darn GOOD! My kids looked like they had died and gone to heaven when I served them. My husband thought they were way too rich to be brownie-sized. I just cut them into 1 1/2 inch squares (no bigger) and they are great small pieces of heaven-(if you are into peanut butter and chocolate like I am). I'd totally make this again!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
